NZXT Kraken X61 Review
Having achieved a tidy build with the X41 we were determined to do the same with the X61. Having taken out a RAM stick to allow us a bit more wiggle room we set about the job of routing all the cables in the right direction. With the RAM stick back in we think we've done not too shabby a job, especially when you consider just how many cables exit from the contact plate.
The fitting process is exactly the same as that for the X41 and a good many other Asetek based AIO coolers and so does not require additional extensive coverage here. Suffice to say it's one of the easiest mounting systems you'll ever come across. The combined depth of the rad and fans is just 52mm and so fits easily into the roof space of the Cooler Master Test Trooper, as it should into a good many of the more recent mid towers on the market today. We also think the longer 400mm of tubing lends itself well to a tidy install.
All assembled and ready to go. We're really interested to see just how well it fares in the torture tests.
As with the X41, the CAM software enables you to alter the colour of the NZXT logo. Options are also available to make the colours blink our pulse as well as having the full rainbow dance before your eyes. For our part we thought we'd show something to keep both sets of GPU fan boys happy.
